Free guitar lessons for beginners
Posted March 18th, 2011 - 4:46 pm by from Goettingen, Germany (Permalink)
Hi everyone!

I have been playing the guitar for a few years now and now I want to help other people who would like to learn it as well. I play western and electric guitar and can teach both.

I am far away from being a professional teacher, but I already gave some lessons to a few people and I can teach all the important guitar basics. You don't need to be able to read sheetmusic, you don't need any skills, you just need 2 hands, motivation and a little bit of time.

I can give you one lesson once a week and normally they will take place at my place in Mariendorf, Tempelhof. Obviously I cannot teach more than just a few people, so be quick, if you are interested :)

All the lessons are for free which means i won't take any money and I don't expect anything in return.
Nevertheless there are some things that I expect:
1) You should practice at least 2,5 hours between the lessons. If you cannot practice that much every week, we can also arrange lessons only every second week.
2) You should organize your own guitar. I have a spare one but it's quite hard to play. In the lessons you can play o one of my guitars, but you need your own at home. If you want to buy a guitar I can help you finding a good one.
3) YOU SHALL HELP OTHERS. If you can. However you want to.

This means for every hour of my time that I give to you, I expect you to be willing to help someone else for free for one and a half hours. You can choose yourself when you want to do this, what you want to do, whom you want to help and you can also decide whether you are able to help others (but nearly everyone is). Of course I won't control this, but I expect you to be honest and only to take my lessons if you are willing to help others.

If you are interested or have any questions drop me a message

I have enough students now!
In fact I got more than enough so if there would be anyone who also wants to teach the guitar, this would be great.
